Product description

The Orion AC 80/400 short tube telescope:

You can take this compact telescope with you anywhere - it weighs only around 1.8kg and is only about 40cm long. You will be amazed by its surprisingly wide field of view and the clear, sharp images it delivers. Details on planets become visible and you will be able to take a look at nebulae and galaxies but not have to be bothered with any complex technical details. The ideal telescope for beginners!

The advantages in a nutshell:

  • light compact OTA
  • ideal for beginners and when travelling

It is not only important which telescope you buy, but also where you buy it.

We provide extra help:

  • We are a leading telescope dealer and know these instruments like the back of our hands.
  • We are always very happy to offer our assistance after your purchase, should you encounter any problems with your telescope’s setup or operation.
  • Our ‘Telescope Basics’ booklet - an 80-page beginner's guide for our telescopes – is provided free of charge with every telescope we sell.

Our expert comment:

This 80/400 telescope comes without tube clamps and mounting rail. The appropriate items are Skywatcher 90mm Tube Ring Set and Skywatcher Mounting plate for EQ-4/5/6 mounts - short. For the tripod, please select Skywatcher Multi-function Mount Plate.

If the telescope is to be used as a guide scope, then please select the following Orion Guide Scope Rings, 105mm ID.

A significant improvement in imaging quality is provided by Baader Filters 1.2“ semi APO filter (plane-optical polished).
